Giatec Releases Upgraded SmartRock Concrete Maturity Sensor

Concrete Sensor maker, Giatec, launched their first wireless concrete sensor in 2015 and, since then, they have continued to improve both their hardware and software.  At the World of Concrete 2020, the company announced a re-design of their SmartRock sensor and I was there to get the details.

For those unfamiliar with the SmartRock sensor, it acts as a concrete embedded maturity sensor which monitors the placed concrete on-site for curing and hardening.  The sensors give contractors real-time and ASTM-approved reports for how their concrete is reporting, rather than having to wait for cylinder break tests from the lab.

The latest version of the sensor is called SmartRock 3, which takes over for version 2.  With it comes several upgrades, including a 5 times stronger wireless signal range and a new rebar mounting method.

In addition to hardware upgrades, Giatec also announced new mobile application, an enhanced cloud-based dashboard, a more powerful AI assistant for analyzing data, and a new API interface to allow more applications to integrate with the Giatec platform.

As I mentioned above, I met up with the Giatec team at World of Concrete recently and they gave me a rundown of all of the updates.  Check out the video below for more information on the SmartRock sensors and Giatec system:
